PROGRAM FOR RURAL AND PRIVATE SCHOOLS FOR DEEPER RELATIONSHIP WITH NATURE
“I am joining ISA because I believe that appreciation for nature and a conscious land use can be enhanced by offering more opportunities to the society to interact within these spaces. I have a deep trust in the young generations as a potential target group for an outdoor environmental education”
Lucia Toledo (33 years) is an agronomist engineer with a passion for sustainable agricultural alternatives. She holds a Master’s degree in Forestry with a specialty in Agroforestry. Inspired by one of the oldest national parks in Bolivia and the direct relationship it has with her home city, her ISA project is based on promoting outdoor environmental education for the conservation of national parks and green spaces, and to promote sustainable food production systems.
To achieve this aim, her project SACHA (Forest in Quechua) intends to create a program for rural and private schools that deepens the relationship of the participants with nature. Inviting them to come for a program in “natural statuaries” (national and local parks, farms or other green areas).
